Meghan Markle ended a busy week of royal engagements with perhaps the most important one of all: she appeared as part of a star-studded panel discussion on International Women's Day. The event, organized by the Queen's Commonwealth Trust, saw Meghan joined by a host of international talent to discuss various issues affecting modern women. Of course, for such an important occasion, Meghan wore an outfit that meant business.
Though the clothes were by no means the focus of this powerful event, the Duchess of Sussex is no stranger to the importance of dressing for success. She is patron of SmartWorks, a charity that helps long-term unemployed and vulnerable women regain skills for the workforce. Part of this involves providing them with interview outfits free of charge. Meghan has donated her own items to the cause and even even tried her hand at providing styling advice. She knows that the right outfit can convey a strong message and help women feel empowered, and it definitely felt like that was what she was doing on Friday.
Meghan wore a striking $345 Azzura swirl-print dress by Reiss, topped with a sharp black blazer by Alexander McQueen. Her trusty Manolo Blahnik BB Pumps and a Stella McCartney clutch finished the look. Keep reading to take a closer look and to shop the dress for yourself.
